The two real, actual problems people have with "Obamacare"
Let's face it, the fact is, there are only two real problems Americans have with the Affordable Care Act, aka "Obamacare."
Sure, there's the whole idea that we aren't quite sure what it is or how much it's going to cost or who's going to pay for it or, ultimately, how it will work because, really, that would require reading and/or paying attention, after all, right? And who's "got time for that"?
But ignoring that, there's really only two problems Americans have with this bill.
The first one is the big one.
It REQUIRES Americans to do something.
It demands that we all get health insurance.
And that goes against everything Americans in the 21st Century have come to be for.
WE HATE TO BE TOLD WHAT TO DO.
And we especially hate to be told what to do, for something to be required of us by Uncle Sam. We hate to be told we have to do something BY GUBMINT. It just goes against our current, very spoiled grain right now. We're far too spoiled to have anyone TELL US WHAT WE HAVE TO DO. (Even if it's for the greater well-being of the society, too, as it turns out).
That's the first problem.
The second problem is a tougher one, though albeit more short-term.
We really, really don't want no dang Kenyan/Socialist/Communist/Pinko/Gubmint lover tellin' us what to do.
